iCracked Will Buy Your Old iPhone From You While You’re In Line For Your iPhone 6 On Friday September 19, 2014

If you’re planning on standing in line at an Apple Store for an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus this morning, you might be able to actually sell your old iPhone while you wait and have money available to buy the new device.

iCracked has a brilliant idea they’re trying out tomorrow. They’ll have techs on hand to look at your old device, make an estimate, and if you accept, they’ll hand you a debit card that you can use to pay for your new iPhone.

iCracked is an international company that employs 677 “iTechs” to do iPhone and iPad repairs on-site. The company also buys used equipment, and is known for its “do it yourself” repair kits as well.

Of course, not every Apple Store will have someone on hand, but iCracked techs will be on hand at the following Apple Stores:

Today announced a suite of mobile accessories designed for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s that combines beautiful design with unparalleled function.

The Logitech® case+ serves as the foundation of the system, which will be sold as a collection and includes an array of practical yet beautiful add-ons that enhance the functionality of your phone.

The magnetically mounted additions to the case+ include the Logitech +tilt, a kickstand and cord keeper, the Logitech +energy, which is designed to double your phone’s battery life, the Logitech +drive, which is a mount for a car window or dashboard, and the Logitech +wallet, which lets you bring your cards and cash along when you’re on the go. Collectively, the new solutions give you sleek protection and a host of new features.

Already selected as a Gold 2014 Edison award winner, recognized for creative design and innovation, the Logitech case+ accessories work together, making it easy for you to do what you need to do, no matter where you are.

The new accessories include:

case+

The case+ is a protective case that serves as the foundation of the system. Key to the functionality is a metal plate across the back of the case, which provides style and an added layer of protection, and also serves as the mounting plate for the magnetic system.

+tilt

With gentle curves, a soft-touch finish, modern colors and two different cover materials, the +tilt adds both style and function to your iPhone 5 or iPhone 5s. With a kickstand, earbud wrap and magnetic mounting, the +tilt gives you the tools you need to get through your busy day with style to spare.

Its magnetic free-mount system lets you attach your smartphone to any metal surface – from your fridge to a file cabinet – so you can follow a new recipe or video chat with colleagues, hands free. When you want to watch a favorite video, just fold the +tilt into a kickstand for easy viewing. And when it’s time to put away your earbuds, simply wrap the cord over your smartphone, then fold and remove the +tilt panel for quick and hassle-free storage.

+energy

The +energy adds both style and extra power to your case+ covered iPhone 5 or iPhone 5s. With a free-mount battery panel, you’ve got power when you want it. Just snap the +energy battery pack onto your phone and you can get double the power of your battery. With the +energy you get unparalleled quality, cutting-edge technology, unrivaled design and extraordinary simplicity.

+drive

The +drive delivers a one-touch modern phone mount for your car. When your case+ covered smartphone is helping you navigate the road or keeping you entertained in the car, you need an easy way to secure it without distracting you. The +drive mount adheres to your windshield or dashboard through a suction cup with a single twist action to lock it in place. With the help of the case+ protective case, your iPhone magnetically mounts with one touch to keep your phone secure and visible at the same time. The +drive also comes with a universal adaptor that allows a second smartphone to be used with the system.

+wallet

The +wallet turns your case+ into a slim, stylish wallet that conveniently keeps cards and cash at your fingertips. With magnetic coupling, the +wallet instantly unites your phone and wallet into one pocket-friendly design. To keep your credit cards and hotel keys safe, the +wallet features Magnashield technology, which protects the contents of your wallet by creating a barrier to prevent demagnetization. The +wallet stylishly solves your pockets’ problems, uniting everything you need when you’re on the go.

Pricing and Availability

The Logitech case+ collection is expected to be available in the U.S. beginning in in May 2014, for a suggested retail price of $199.99.

The program will roll out on a larger scale in September.

When trading in the device, customers will receive a gift card with the determined value amount to go toward the new iPhone. Customers will receive the old SIM card and employees will offer to setup the new iPhone.

New Apple iPhone Event Slated For September 10

Apple will unveil its next-generation iPhone at a September 10 event, according to a report from AllThingsD—a publication that is frequently fed accurate advance details on upcoming product releases by Apple.

AllThingsD says that the event will focus on the “update it has in store for the current iPhone,” but doesn’t definitively rule in or out an unveiling of the well-documented but still unannounced low-cost iPhone. “Naturally, any new phones will be running iOS 7,” the report notes, suggesting that the public release of the operating system first shown in June will also take place in September.

The report suggests that the event is unlikely to see the release of OS X Mavericks, and says there is “no indication” that Apple’s television or watch products are “close to debuting.” Nothing was said about new iPads, iPods, or other products.

ABC Has Live-Streaming Mobile App In The Works

The New York Times is reporting that ABC is working on an app to stream live ABC programming to the iPhones and iPads of cable and satellite TV subscribers.

ABC, which is a subsidiary of Disney, would become the first American broadcaster to provide a live Internet stream of both national and local programming.

By providing the stream only to those who already pay for cable or satellite TV, the Times notes that ABC “preserves the cable business model that is crucial to the bottom lines of broadcasters, while giving subscribers more of what they seem to want — mobile access to TV shows.”
